I was told, " it limits our ability to offer features like custom Snippets, timecode adjustment, etc." ExpressScribe is able to work in conjunction with either Word macros (augh) or an app like TextExpander (awesome!) to integrate snippets. ExpressScribe also has timecode adjustment. So I don't believe that these are true barriers to making Inqscribe play in the background.
I hope to find a third developer who wants to work with Mac transcriptionists in making a transcription app that will work for them -- based on comments in the forums here and at NCH, it's clear I'm by far not the only one with that dream. I spend 60+ hours a week fighting with ExpressScribe and would love to expend some of that energy more productively. I'm truly sad that I won't be bringing my business here because Inqscribe had such promise. :(
I have been desperately trying away to get away from your competitor, NCH (ExpressScribe), for years. The only reason I'm not able to is that is because Inqscribe doesn't let me type directly into Word. All my clients use templates with complex coding that would get lost in an export or copy/paste scenario. Last time I checked in here, that was something you were considering. Is this still something you might be working on?Anonymous supported this idea ·
I will buy your software the second this feature becomes available for the Mac version. I do law enforcement transcription into a very specific Word template and therefore need to be able to control the video file with an Infinity foot pedal while typing in Word. Please get me out of the hell that is Express Scribe, which has this feature, but crashes when handling videos!
